About the property

4 Bedrooms, 5.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

Master bedroom and penthouse bedroom with balcony+ 2 other bedrooms all with private baths. The ever changing vista offers painting like sunrises, sunsets and moonrises, and sailboats and lobster boats passing daily. Trains pass over the river and on a clear day Mount Washington can be seen on the decks. Enjoy the sandy beaches or take long walks on the beach and smell the ocean breeze. There are two decks and one patio to enjoy outdoors, barbecue or just simply relax and let the world roll by. The living room and media room with hot tub are spacious and the sitting room is perfect for cozy get together after dinner. It is breathtaking to sit on the outer deck by the water to watch the wild life or the beautiful sunsets. Old Orchard Beach is only round the corner where all the tourist fun begins. There are many seafood restaurants and casual dinning of a variety of cuisines. Lobster pounds are close by if one fancies cooking a delicious fresh sea food dinner. Portland (25 minutes by car) and Freeport (40 minutes by car) are great shopping destinations where name brand stores are plenty.

About Gaston Lee

I was the former CFO of a ferry/cruise line in Main for over 30 years.. There is just nowhere in this world like the USA, such a wonderful melting pot for all nationalities. Life is wonderful here, people work hard and play hard.

Gaston Lee purchased this house in 1999

Why Gaston Lee chose Scarborough and Pine Point

This is a dream home that I designed. The people are so nice in the area and most of all the beautiful water view and wild life near the ocean. My house is filled with visitor relatives and friends from all over the world for many years. Now it is slowing down and time to let other people enjoy it too.

What makes this house unique

The scenery is never the same here and always spectacular even during a thunderstorm or during the snow wintery days.. I have seen the house from the plane and also on the Down Easter train which runs through the bridge on the Scarborough River. It is quite a sight to see freight trains or the Down Easter pass through in the distant horizon. On a clear day one can see Mount Washington from the top deck. There is never a dull moment on the water, lobster boats, sea birds and kayaks. At high tide one can skiff to the mooring and cruise some of the best waters in Maine. The open floor plan maximizes the scenic view of the harbor and marsh. It is such a treat just to sit on the deck and not do anything..

A wonderful week at 12 Riversands Drive

  • 4 of 5

We were 6 adults and 5 children age 6 months to 6 years old. The house was a great fit for our needs with enough bedrooms and bathrooms to give everyone their own space. The view from the property was beautiful. Access to the small beach along the river was close and easy. Access to the main beach was a not as accessible and a bit of a challenge with 5 children but still very doable. The two TV's are ancient and in need of an update. The hot tub was a nice plus. Kitchen was well stocked with everything needed to prepare meals. An outside shower would be a nice and needed addition to facilitate sand removal before entering the home. I highly recommend this property.
